645N and Eneloops?

Anybody using Eneloops in their 645n? Any issues? Should I worry about anything?

Why would you use eneloops in 645N? These old cameras are not battery hogs that the digital cameras are. Alkalines will give you slightly better performance (IINM) and will last quite long (I've had the same batteris in my zx-7 and mz-l for a year, light to moderate use -a roll per three weeks-, and the zx-7 have only started showing the half battery sign.

Only because right now I have Eneloops and don't have any regular batteries and I would like to test the camera.

I tried 1.2V rechargeable AA in my 645N during the last millennium.

I notice slower film advance and AF probably due to the motor getting 7.2V as opposed to 9V. I did not test metering accuracy.

AA last such a long time that it was not a major cost issue. I never chimped when I am shooting with it.

I apologize if it comes off as snarky and didn't actually answer the question earlier. But testing it with eneloops wouldn't be a problem as said by saohom. And i think i already commented in the thread, but that thread is full of great pics I miss my 645N, but processing it is quite a hassle where i live...
